If you've been following along with me, I'm sure you saw over on my Instagram that I took a trip to Nashville with my best blogger friends last month. It was a trip of a lifetime. Becoming a fashion blogger has brought me some of the greatest blessings of my life and I can't even begin to word how grateful I am. I'm going to have to break up our trip into a few blog posts, simply because we did SO much while away, it would be way too much to fit all in one! :P
A little over a year ago, myself along with these 9 other bloggers, became part of what we call a "Blogger Support Group" through direct messaging on Instagram. What we intended this group chat to be was an online chat between different bloggers around the country, where we would help each other on our journey, support one another, and look to one another for blogging advice and such. What this turned into was much, much more. Turns out we started sharing more than just blogging tips! We started sharing with one another things that were going on in our personal lives, as well as laughs and even heart to hearts through our direct message. About 6 months into our chat, we decided we HAD to meet up, because we were 10 long lost friends that needed to be united. So, we planned a trip to Nashville.

On this trip, we were lucky enough to be sponsored by several different brands, one being Shop Impressions, (what we are all wearing in these photos!) We all chose our looks for this shoot. Without knowing what one another picked, we opened our box, put on our outfits, and surprisingly, we coordinated our look PERFECTLY without even trying. I mean, come on! Nothing is clashing, everything is so smooth and the photos came out absolutely beautiful!
I'm gonna go ahead and get real mushy, real sappy and really real with y'all right now. These girls are some of the most amazing women I have ever met. We spent 4 days together, and from the second we saw each other, it was like we were friends all our lives. We spent our days making memories, while shooting different looks, and enjoying some delicious eats together. We spent our nights out on the town dancing til our feet couldn't go anymore. We stayed up late and exchanged words. Heart to hearts, and each of our individual life experiences. We prayed together. And it was a moment I will never forget and hold close to my heart forever. I am so sure God knew we were meant to meet, we were meant to have each other, and we were meant to take that trip. It was an experience of a lifetime and I can't wait for our next one!
